Description :
Reduction is the underlying principle of the Geomorphological Map (GMM) legends. The risk inherent in reduction is that the disintegration of complex phenomena into their elements can be irreversible. The synthesis of the complex from a precise knowledge of the individual elements is therefore precluded. The question arising from this is whether it is still expedient, for the object of geomorphological research, to pursue the degree of reduction proposed in the GMM legend.
